Happy New Year all , Jo here and welcome to my first blog post for the year.
Today I have made a sweet card set using two of my favourite Inspired By Stamping stampsets. The first stampset is the “Easter Lily” & second one is the “Hello“, which I have cutup. I know for some of you this may be rather daunting. The OCD side of me really struggled with this concept however I wanted to tailor my gift set as I had a specific friend in mind to give this to.
Ok,so I first cut up this stampset as you can see below. I set aside the sentiments that I wish to use on a separate cardstock.
The sentiments has been heat embossed with white embossing powder on coloured strips of coloured cardstock.
I tapped into my paper stash hoard vault and pulled this beautiful paper collection out. I have used the paper to cover the full top folding vanilla base for thecard front. With very vanilla cardstock panels I have die cut with border strip framelits to create interest tot he panels and foam mounted this onto the floral paper.
To add a feminine touch to accompany the type of paper chosen I have used paper doilies which I have placed on carefully with glue dots as I found this type of adhesive was less likely to be seen through the very paper thin doilies.
I have stamped the Lily image on die cut circles and hearts with light blue & strawberry inks. To embellish each card I have used two types of hemp twine natural and bleached. I have also used some resin flowers and buttons to tie off the twine which I have adhered on with glue dots.
I hope you enjoyed today’s sweet card creation set and i am looking forward to creating more projects for you throughout the year.
Lots of paper crafting hugs.
